Pretty amazing, crew was amazing too. I highly recommend. Smaller boat do not so much if you get sea sick.

Mahalo Jessica for giving us some review love. We appreciate the support. If anyone out there gets seasick or not sure if you do... better to be safe than sorry. Make sure you take preventative medication at least one hour before your tour's departure time. One dose should do it. ;)

It was fantastic. The crew was so nice. We went on the early tour which meant we had to be up before five but this tour more than made up for us not getting to sleep in. I got seasick during this tour and I would still do it again. It was wonderful.

Amazing experience- we saw baby whales, adult whales, sea turtles, and dolphins. The crew was very professional and knowledgeable, and everything went very smoothly. (One caveat- definitely stock up on Dramamine if you're at all prone to motion sickness.)

We had a great time with Lucia, Sam and the rest of the crew. They know the area and the animals well, and knew just where to look to find them. Their passion is clear as they loved answering my never ended stream of questions, and they put just as much thought and care towards their passengers. 100% recommend them to anyone wishing to go see the sea life!

I certainly enjoyed the experience and the care of the team towards making us comfortable and happy while respecting the wellbeing of dolphins and turtles. Definitively much better real experience than the other option that is more a boat for partying than enjoying nature.

From the minute I boarded the bus for the 45 min trip to Waianae harbour, I knew that I was in good hands. The boat ride is brilliant, and we were fortunate enough to see both spinner dolphins and turtles on our tour. This was topped off by yummy lunch at Spinnners cafe. Highly recommend. Ill be back next trip. Mahalo!

We swam with turtles, and 20 dolphins. We saw a few whales. The tour guides were awesome and very sympathetic and caring for my poor wife who got sea sick. I would def would do this tour again in a heart beat. The best on the island. If you want to see wild life you go on this cruise.

Emanuelle picked us up from our hotel and was fantastic and so engaging. The tour just got better from there. The entire staff was very friendly. We saw spinner dolphins, sea turtles, spotted dolphins and the majestic humpback whale. It was a great time for our family. Lunch was very tasty as well. If you want to really enjoy yourself, please, please take this tour when in Honolulu!!!
